[jdev] Connect/disconnect

OK, so I've built Jabber 2 and deployed it on my Mac OS X system. It's 
talking to a local MySQL instance and all the components seem to be 
communicating with each other.

When I try to connect via telnet or any of a number of jabber clients, 
I'm immediately disconnected. The log file shows:

Jun 14 16:50:58 localhost jabberd/c2s[1067]: [8] [, 
port=51014] connect
Jun 14 16:50:58 localhost jabberd/c2s[1067]: [8] [, 
port=51014] disconnect

...when I try to connect with a Jabber client. When I try to telnet in, 
I get this:

[adsl-67-115-140-147:/usr/local/bin] dramsey% telnet localhost 5222
Trying ::1...
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
[adsl-67-115-140-147:/usr/local/bin] dramsey%

I suspect it has something to do with my host configuration. My local 
machine doesn't really have a DNS resolvable name (whatever.com), so 
I've tried various combinations of "localhost", "", and my 
native IP.

Can anyone point out the obvious thing I'm overlooking?
